Influencer breaks both legs after falling 80ft while attempting extreme yoga pose
A 23-year-old college student has survived a fall of 80 feet after slipping while performing an extreme yoga pose on a balcony railing in Mexico.
Alexa Terrazas was posing for photographs while attempting the stunt, before slipping and falling from the balcony of her sixth-floor apartment.
The tragedy occurred in Nuevo Leon on Saturday and a photograph has gone viral showing Terrazas balancing seconds before she fell.
It shows the brand-influencer supporting her entire weight on the railing, her head pointing toward the ground 80ft below.
Alexa was rushed to a local hospital where she battled through a grueling 11 hours of surgery.
She remains in a critical condition with fractures to all four of her limbs as well as to her hips and skull and might not walk for three years after doctors reconstructed her legs.
